Mark Ellis looks forward to Crawley encounter
Mark Ellis has avoided relegation with his previous club Torquay United in the past and now he is aiming to do the same with Crewe Alexandra. The competitive defender does not want relegation on his CV and having formed a new partnership with Adam Dugdale due to Harry Davis’s knee injury, the 25-year-old is determined to make sure Crewe avoid the drop back into League Two.
Following on from two disappointing home defeats, Ellis is aiming to help Crewe Alexandra back on track at Crawley this weekend and he has taken heart from our recent away displays at Walsall, Port Vale and Gillingham.
Mark told Crewe Alex Player: “We haven’t been able to get anything from our two home games and that has been hugely disappointing coming on the back of what we achieved at Gillingham.
“All we can do is keep working hard every day at training, out on the pitch and have that belief that we can get the points we need.
“Some of the lads have not been in this situation before in their careers. I was involved in a relegation scrap whilst at Torquay and managed to pull away and I want to do the same again. No-one wants to have relegation on their CV and I can assure everyone that the lads are working hard to make sure it doesn’t happen here.
“I think everyone saw that in our performance last week against Coventry. It is all about getting points now. It doesn’t matter if it is scrappy or we don’t play particularly well.
“We have done well on the road lately and need that to continue at Crawley this weekend. A win there would give us a massive boost going into the last five games.”
